	Which book did you buy?  There are better places to start than


I bought "The Fatal Conceit: The Errors of Socialism", pub. Routledge
1988. I thought that might get to the heart of the matter quite quickly.

I would be grateful if you, Chris, could steer me away from the shallows.

And in view of Louis's remarks about the dangerous fate of Hilary
Wainwright through dabbling with these ideas, perhaps the book could have
a health warning attached.

Actually Lou, I think you should be credited not only with a devilish
sense of irony but a keen appreciation of an eye-catching title for
your posts.

But if you have "sort of made up my mind about ... Hayekian philosophy"

I would be more than sort of interested to know how. <straight>.

You might even save me from mortal ideological danger <deadpan>.

Regards to both, (Chris and Louis)
